How to play
Crimson Abyss - Fundamentals
Blue Orb 3-Ping + Any 3-Ping to enter Blade Will mode (sword wave)
It's best to use both 3-Pings back-to-back in quick succession
Using and playing around Matrix is highly recommended to activate Blade Will mode
At SS-Rank, trigger Core Passive using Blue Orb 3-Ping + Red Orb 3-Ping
Only use Signal Orbs when:
Activating her Core Passive or pinging sword waves
Rearranging orbs in order to activate her Core Passive
Signature Move should only be used for defense
Using it gives you temporary invincibility
The damage is low and using it results in lower damage-per-second
Crimson Abyss - Additional Information
Core Passive details:
Every signal orb she has or obtains during her Core Passive gets converted into a sword wave ping
During Core Passive the damage boost from a Blue Orb Ping is massively boosted and turned into additional sword waves
The Core Passive backstep animation counts as a dodge
Activate the 4 piece bonus by dodging an enemy's attack to greatly increase the damage they take
Activate the full 2-piece bonus by dodging twice and activating her core passive (the activation counts as a dodge)
Dodge towards the enemy to make the most out of the 4 second damage window
Dodging shortly after a Red Orb Ping skips the animation but still does full damage
Dodging immediately after a Blue Orb Ping skips the animation and counts for the Core Passive, but doesn't activate the buff
Placing a Da Vinci holder in the blue slot of her team is recommended as a Blue Orb 3-Ping is always required to activate her Core Passive
The fastest way to activate her Core Passive and get the most damage is, in extremely rapid succession: Dodge enemy attack (Matrix) -> Blue Orb Matrix Ping -> Any 3-Ping (Core Passive) -> Dodge forward -> Activate QTEs -> Sword Waves
